Timber Cove is a Sonoma Coast hideaway located about 14 miles north of Jenner. A local landmark, familiar to travelers along the scenic Pacific Coast Highway, is Bufano's Obelisk, a 93-foot spire resembling a totem pole that towers over the bluffs adjacent to the Timber Cove Inn. Once the site of prosperous fur-trading and timber industries, the Timber Cove / Fort Ross area was settled by Russian fur traders in the early 1800s; and their influence can still be seen in some of the architecture of the area, including the historic buildings in Fort Ross.
